It should be posted on your personal page under Messages > Admission Documents.

I'm an idiot. Found it under archived messages. No clue how that happened, but found nonetheless.

FWIW, I just spoke to my C&F person on the phone (she called me to follow up on my C&F recommendation letter question). She said that C&F has absolutely nothing to do with the scores, so for those worrying that not having a letter might indicate not passing, that is not the case.

She also said they haven't heard anything from the graders but that we should start looking out on October 1st. She confirmed that it will be sent via email and the email will contain a link that goes to a pass or fail letter on the user homepage--so you will not see "pass" or "fail" in the email.

For those of you freaking out about not receiving a C & F letter, I would recommend just emailing your file processor. As of five minutes ago, I hadn't received one either. I just emailed my processor and Viola! I got a C & F letter in my inbox only a few minutes later. It could be that file processors are overwhelmed and just forget to send them out....maybe? I don't know. Just letting you know what happened to me.

Really nervous about results coming out Thursday. Anyone else finish both MBE sections early? I feel like I had about 10 minutes at the end of each session to check answers, and that was with a bathroom break. Starting to worry that I missed some of the MBE's nuances.

Hello, brand new cycle of terror. Didn't know we still needed to get an official C&F thing. Although they wrote me last week that my deadbeat former employer hasn't confirmed my employment so I'm blaming them.

I finished both sections with 45 mins-ish to spare. Which were on par with my practice times. But who knows. At this point, either tell me I passed or give me a quick death.

I wish I was like 10 years old so I could have my dad call the board of bar examiners and yell at them until they gave him my results.

They usually post the stat on the 30th. Haven't seen anything yet.

I thought the first section was very confusing and that it did not mimic the practice tests that you could purchase. I was done with the second portion with around that much time to spare, as well.

From reading threads from the past two years, they would post something on the 30th, dont know if it was referring to the point scale or stat. Not going to look through it right now. Less than 24 hours in any case (or so we think).

None of the questions mimic anything like Barbri, nor did they resemble E&E, Adaptive Bar, NCBE questions, or anything I've done.

So true. I woke up at least 4 times last night and can barely concentrate on anything. This is NOT my finest hour, that's for sure.

Here is the percentile chart for July 2015. I don't think they posted it yet, I found it through trickery and thievery and such.

So passage rate is about 75%? (Between 22 and 31 percentile)

Yes. I like that you took the glass half full approach, whereas I was immediately like "oh 25% of people failed."

That's my thought, but I edited it so it sounded more positive. lol
